    March 17th - Main Guild Saturday Meeting 10:30

Weaving and Dyeing Meeting.

March is a member-led meeting with a weaving and dyeing theme. We have two workshops.

Stick Loom Weaving led by Patricia. 11:00 am.

Patricia will show us a fun way to weave without a loom or frame.
You can do it almost anywhere and if you have a darning needle and left over yarn (as most of us do) it's free.

Ombre Dyeing with food colours led by Debbie Haskell. 2:00 pm.

Ombre dyeing creates colors that shade into each other.
Please bring a small amount of wool yarn or roving to dye as this is a sampling / experimental session.

Mini wheel workshop with Roz at 1:30 pm.

Fibre: batts, roving, tops and rolags explained and their effect on spinning.
Please bring in samples of ready prepared fibres, to identify, study & practice with. 

It is also the launch date of the Guild project to create a lap blanket to show our creativity and to be used for shows. We will be giving out 50g of fibre to spin, +/- dye and create 8 inch squares which will to taken back and joined together to create a lap blanket for shows and inspiration to us all.
